I started Castle Coaching Fitness in 2016 with the aim of helping runners of all abilities to achieve their goals.  Based in Stafford I offer a range of different services including tailored training plans, one-to-one coaching and workshops.  Whether it is a one off session to help with a specific aspect of running, someone new to running who needs some guidance or you just need some structure to your training Castle Coaching Fitness can help.  With over 30 years as a competing athlete I am able to understand the importance of effective training from the perspective of the runner as well as the coach.
